oh really? :confused: Ok,then I copy anb paste it here so you can see it.

This is the interview :

Olympic spotlight on...Svetlana Kuznetsova


Q: You know all about the Olympics through your family and its achievements in cycling. What was your earliest memory of the Olympics?

SK: I guess my brother when he went to Atlanta and nobody expected him to do so good, and they won a silver medal. It was amazing. It was a really amazing feeling. I was really excited about this. I saw what it meant to my family and to everybody in Russia. Everybody was really, really happy.

http://www.itftennis.com/shared/medialibrary/image/gallery/IO_34707_gallery.JPG

Q: Did yotr ’årents ever talk to you about the Olympics? Your mother represented Russia in cycling too.

SK: My mum didn't go to Olympics; she was a good athlete, but she didn't have opportunity to go. They definitely talked to me about how serious it is, how good it would be if I could go and do well. Definitely it's there, it's in our family’s mind.

Q: Do you enjoy playing for your country in Fed Cup and the Olympics?

SK: It's huge for myself. When I play Fed Cup, I play for my country, I play for Russia, it's so different. I'm really excited, you know, to do that because I represent my country. And to have Russia written on my back, to know I play for Russia, it's huge.

Q: If you could play any other sport at the Olympics, what would you pick?

SK: I think I would pick tennis, one more time tennis and tennis. I don't know - I just love the game. I don't want to do any other sport, I'm happy where I am and I love the game. This is it.

Q: What would you go and watch?

SK: Oh, I would go watch many things. I went last time to the gymnastics. I think those guys do a huge job. My friends are not competing there any more, like [Svetlana] Khorkina.

Q: And obviously the dream would be to win a medal.

SK: Definitely. I'll probably try to play singles and doubles, so have more opportunities. But, yeah, definitely it's going to be the dream.

Q. The Olympics would have to be the highlight of 2008 for you?

SK: If I do well, definitely.

Btw, does anyone know where there'll be livestreams from the olympic tennis? Is Eurosport gonna have something on their website? Or maybe the official Beijing Olympic website? (I sent a text to the Norwegian commentator at ES and she said that ES is only gonna send the finals on TV.... I was hoping they would send more though.)

Sveta can beat everyone. We know that. But there is luck involved as well! Hey, does anyone know if the tennis is outdoors or indoors? And the surface? I'm wondering about the weather and the pollution.

omg i don't like the draw at all :o Na Li is possibly one of the toughest players to face in round 1,she has top 10 level when she's not injured.Why Sveta so bad luck? :banghead: well something is clear,with such hard draw Sveta will have to raise her game level from last week or by bye medal...

I like the fact they're first seeds in doubles,even if it's a bit surprising ;)

Yarden,tu puedes means you can do it!

Sveta has become quite mediocre lately. She can hardly hold serve, couldn't close out someone who hasn't picked up the tennis racquet in a long time.
She is the only top 5 player who hasn't been able to win a tournament since ages.
And to think about she actually has a chance to become number 1 :tape:

cant believe it.
but on the other hand she had a lot of pressure her family wanted it bad her fans and people tought she could do it as no.3 of the world. think she needs to take some rest not to long cuz cant miss her that long but whatever she needs to get it all together. hope she will play tennis till 2012 she will be 27 then not the best age lately but it can happen but then her level should go up again.

she had a worse down period in 2005 and came back great I think she can do it again.

GO SVETA KEEP IT ALL TOGETHER!!

I think she might feel she is giving up things she wants in life so that she can continue to play tennis now. I think that might be bothering her more than she thinks. I think it's hard to sacrifice part of life for a career, and since tennis is such a mental game, even small doubts or frustrations about tennis can cause the brain to wander. All imo, of course.

Here's a report I found about doubles match yesterday.It's from a Hindu site as you can see:

Sania and Sunitha lose Special Correspondent BEIJING: Sania Mirza and Sunitha Rao fought like wounded tigresses before succumbing to the top-seeded pair of Svetlana Kuznetsova and Dinara Safina of Russia in the pre-quarterfinals of the women’s doubles at the Olympic Green Tennis Centre here on Wednesday.
Sania, who was nursing a wrist injury and had a long tape running from her wrist to shoulder and Sunitha, who had her right thigh heavily strapped, made light of their discomfiture to put up an entertaining display.
However, the big-serving Russians, with their experience in the big league, came back strongly after trailing 0-3, being two breaks down, to eventually script a 6-4, 6-4 triumph in an hour-and-a-half.
After being up 3-0, the Indian pair lost four games in a row.
Sania held serve to make it 4-4, but Sunitha’s serve was broken in the 10th game which helped the Russians pocket the first set.
Fightback In the second set, the Indian girls fought well to go up 2-1 by breaking Safina in the third game. But Sunitha failed to hold serve in the fourth.
In one final fling, Sania and Sunitha raised their level to break Kuznetsova in the fifth game, but thereafter the pair could win only one game. Sania saved a breakpoint to hold serve for 4-2, but when it looked like the duo could pull off a set at least, errors ate into their game.
After having retired midway through her singles match, it was a brave effort by Sania, to take the court in the first place and play a full match, with the help of pain-killers.
Sunitha, quite unused to this level of play, gave a very good account of herself, but her penchant to go for the big shots resulted in her over-hitting.
The Olympic campaign may have been pretty brief for the Indian girls, but considering the circumstances they acquitted themselves very well.
http://www.hindu.com/2008/08/14/stories/2008081460772600.htm

Also I read in a russian interview with Dinara Safina that Sveta went yesterday to watch Russian basket team ;) (Dinara was a bit jealous because of it)
